Art Philosophy Fathers Day Blog Hop

If you are looking for the gypsy screens giveaway post click here or scroll down to Thursdays post
Welcome to the Father's Day Blog Hop : Art Philosophy style. We are a group of Close to my Heart consultants and will be showcasing father's day projects made using the card feature key from the very versatile Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.  If you are visiting from Stephanie's blog then you are in the right place, if not, please go and start from the beginning at my gracious host and team mate Courtney's blog

Here's my project:

I used the card feature on page 63 but I used cricut craft room to change the height and width so that once cut and folded it fit a standard A2 envelope.

I used the Superhero paper for the card front and this is all the same sheet of paper. I simply cut the zip stip off and then used a 4 inch piece of that as the middle piece and cut 2 strips of the paper itself 2 1/2" by 4". The top half is one side of the paper and the bottom half is the other side. I still have a 9 1/2" by 12" piece left from this piece plus another 2 1/2" by 4" piece AND another 8" piece of the zip strip. YAY!! 

The trophy stamp is from the Superhero Workshop On The Go and is stamped in gold encore ink and embossed with gold embossing powder. 

The Ribbon is the scalloped circle from page 31with some Indian corn blue ink on it and then I hand wrote #1 DAD with my Black marker layered onto the scalloped circle from page 41 and a couple banner shapes criss-crossed from page 68. Since I already had some of these cut from white paper sitting on my desk I just took some Indian corn blue ink and coloured it with it rather than cut into a fresh sheet of paper. The whole thing is popped up on foam tape and I curled the ends so the flip up away from the card base.

I stamped the same trophy in 2nd generation using the gold encore ink on the inside and used my Indian Corn Blue Marker to and write the sentiment.

Here's another shot of the front so you can see the dimension on the ribbon...
